Anyway, I've been knitting.
This is the Catalina Beach Sweater, and I am so in love with it.
I apparently have a thing for chevrons because that's all I've been knitting lately. This is clearly no exception.
I designed it at the end of July, and I probably unconsciously made it a sweater so I could still wear it for fall. Although, seriously, it's 95 degrees today - it has been for awhile, and I feel like I'm going to die.
But I managed to make it to the beach anyway!
Designed to be worn on those cooler, summer nights, the Catalina is knit with cotton yarn and designed with lace eyelets and chevron.
It’s oversized, with enough ease for you to slip it on easily over your swimsuit – or your button down.
The shoulders are dropped, giving it a casual vibe, and the sleeves stop at the elbows – perfectly cool for all seasons.
You don’t have to retire it at the end of the season. It’s perfect for layering in the spring or fall, over a t-shirt or a button down, and it’s perfect for school or work.
And even though it's 95 degrees, I dressed up like it's fall and modeled it, just for you. I hope you love it.
